sadly yes,some rap guy named proof i think did a rap album called in search of jerry garcia or something like that.scarlet begonias was covered by sublime i think and changed the lyrics to we took pcp and lsd to that effect.some other rap group have sampled them,when you have no talent to play your own music i guess that's what you do.i'll have to find the article about jerry's opinion on rap music,from what i recall he wasn't fond of the music ripoffs they do.

"sadly yes,some rap guy named proof i think did a rap album called in search of jerry garcia or something like that."

That was actually out of respect to Garcia, not just trying to cash in on his name. He said that he loved the way that Jerry played to make fans happy rather than just to make money.

Edit: Also, I'd like to see you make a song just by sampling another group since it's such an easy thing to do. It really all depends on how you do your sampling, it can either be slack or done with skill. Find DJ Shadow's Endtroducing and tell me that he doesn't have skill (the entire album is made from samples). Paul's Boutique by the Beastie Boys is another good example of an album based around samples that shows the true skill in sampling.

I used to hear a show on KRCL in SLC UT in the late 80's, was called the "Urban Music" show... Alot of Oakland stylee funk rap and stuff like that. It was good, I liked it! There is a lot of good music out there in any genre... A lot of crap too, all depends on how it feels on the old earballs after all. I have a 21 year old in the house here, she grew up with "street" music... I think most of it angry, unproductive and awful... However, within the genre... 2Pac, I knid of like, brought home the Yin Yang Twins latest (don't remember the title) and I liked it... Raps were positive vibrations, even had real guitars and drumms... But i digress, was going to talk about Viola Lee Blues... Ooopsie... My bad!

;)
